Safe Schools Walking Routes

October is International Walk-To-School Month and a good reminder that walking to school safely is a great way for kids to get exercise and reduce traffic congestion near schools. Unfortunately, many children are unable to walk because the conditions are not safe. The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District, working with community partners, has identified safe walking routes for each school based on the presence of sidewalks, walking paths and the location of crosswalks.  At certain schools, crossing guards are present and help children get to school safely in surrounding neighborhoods.
